Tennessee coaching search: Vols reeling as each new target turns them down

Doeren faces decision after Tennessee makes offer, NC State increases value on extension

He let his players know with a text message Thursday.

The N.C. State board of trustees is expected to approve a five-year contract, worth about $3 million per year, on Friday.

"My family loves it here too much".

"We're building a championship culture, we have first-class facilities, incredible fan support and I'm honored to continue to lead the Wolfpack".

247Sports.com says N.C. State has the sixth-best recruiting class in the Atlantic Coast Conference from the Class of 2018.

Doeren guided the Wolfpack to an 8-4 overall record and 6-2 mark in ACC play this season. NC State is No. 24 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings. NC State had seven All-ACC selections this season, its highest total since 2002, while Bradley Chubb was honored as ACC Defensive Player of the Year.

We also know that a few new characters and at least one previously deceased character will return in some capacity . The streaming service announced the news on Friday, with a comical tweet on their official Twitter page.

Doeren is 56-34 in seven seasons as an FBS head coach.

After that, Doeren and his representatives started to show interest in the vacancies at Mississippi State (Dan Mullen heading to Florida) and Tennessee (Butch Jones fired).

Doeren and Yow "made progress" on contract negotiations during the second half of the football season, but speculation about his future lingered and got to a boiling point this week when Tennessee attempted to lure Doeren away.

Meanwhile ESPN also reports that former LSU coach Les Miles is "very interested" in the Vols head coaching job.

Volunteers fans unhappy with how new Tennessee athletics director John Currie has conducted this coaching search chanted "Fire Currie" on a handful of occasions Wednesday night during the men's basketball team's victory over Mercer. Public backlash caused Schiano's deal to fall through, while the other three have all rejected Tennessee's offer.

Doeren had considered an offer from Oregon State and was in preliminary talks with MS before talks with Tennessee reached the point where he was offered the job on Wednesday night.
